success the city of rochester supported a thriving middle class for two generations. steve jobs equally equal fundamental innovation storm o. o. -- more fundamental innovations increased shareholders but there was no middle-class comprehensive job creation and that is what we are going to have to work through. it's going to require us to be much more imaginative and thinking about various kinds of service work and thinking about the quality of jobs and the dignity of jobs associated with this service sector. i am all for doing everything we can and there's a lot that we can do that is still undone, to bring about a renaissance of american manufacturing but china has gained competitiveness, gained share, innovated and raised its efficiency as much as any country ever will and there are fewer workers in chinese manufacturing today than there were 20 years ago. let me say that again. there are fewer workers in chinese manufacturing today than there were 20 years ago. so success if and when it comes is going to come from various kinds of service work, various kinds of greater customization.
